Just to continue/hijack this thread....
I have always dabbled with TT's, this year I took things a little more seriously and trained to a structured plan - mainly for the Giro delle Dolomiti (a 6 day stage race/sportive in the Dolomites). Part of my training was participation in a local triathletes TT league of a reasonably high standard and reputation. I did well and was usually in the top three against younger and top end triathletes. Following my return from the Dolomites, I was persuaded by a clubmate to enter the National veterans TT championships (40kM on a hilly course). I did this and finished 12th, but more significantly I broke the hour (59:25) in testing/windy conditions in my first "proper" TT (bike conformed tpo UCI regulations).
Now the questions - I appear to have some TT ability, what winter training should I do to improve, what else (training sessions, kit etc) should I do to take some time off this and possibly go faster next season
Thanks

Are you sure that your fit is the best for creating power? Are you using a power meter? For me I find long hard intervals on the tt bike help. Ride your tt bike at least twice a week so its very comfortable to you.

Thanks for the reply
I do not have a powermeter but it has moved to the top of my wish list and I dare say it might even go onto the credit card!
Until then any advice for power boosting training sessions
